Next 2017 BMW M5 Envisioned via Fresh Rendering

This rendering that tries to preview the upcoming BMW M5, based on the next-gen 5-Series, looks rather convincing. The quality of workmanship is not perfect, but the design looks spot on what BMW itself would do – RM Design even added the xDrive badge next to the M5 one for extra credibility…

The next M5 will likely even have have all-wheel drive as an option as this should dramatically improve its driveability in colder climates.

As for the design itself, BMW should just spare itself the cost of penning the new 5-Series and just use this design instead. Nobody would suspect it’s not one of their own, and it’s neither better no worse than their own attempts – this isn’t a compliment.

Check it out after the virtual jump and tell us what changes you’d like BMW to operate on the next M5 to correct some of the current car’s faults… other than “drop in a naturally-aspirated V10…”
